Staff Writer

Harbor Freight Tools is scheduled to open in Benton on Military Road.
Jessica Teague, an administrative assistant in the Benton Community Development Department, told The Saline Courier that the business currently has a permit to put a sign on the building and is remodeling the former location of Hibbett Sports at 1504 Military Road.
She was unsure of when the business would be open.
The company is also currently taking applications on their website for a logistics and sales manager for the new Benton store.
According to the job descriptions, "At Harbor Freight, we deliver the quality tools and affordable prices that hard-working Americans need to build, fix and create.

We are committed to support and promote people based on their relative contribution, skill setand accomplishments and firmly believe in generous pay for performance compensation and building long-term careers.
